Do ya find................

You drive like youre in your scooby even if youre in another car?ive noticed this lately when im in the spacestar especially if its something i stand a reasonable chance against Especially if its young lads in done up motors, ya know alloys loud exhaust an system/bodykit an a 1.1 engine-had loadsa fun from about 6 sets of lights last night as 1 bloke thought his car were faster than the mighty power of the 1300cc spacestar pmsl


Last wk took a clio172 on the inside on an island (both lanes for straight on) late on the brakes an we`re by his face must av been a picture, have noticed when im on my own an roads are quiet im tryin to master sliding the bk end slightly-ya know one day i really fancy buyin a cheap one dropping it stupid low an puttin a evo lump in it-i just think the effect would be priceless-strip all interior out an black all bk windows so ya wouldnt know.


Suspensions average at best but chassis is sometimes great an is tending to get more chuckable an predictable...................know its wrong but cant help wondering what a mad engine an great suspension an brakes would do for one-would be a great laugh.

I get a right ear bashing when i (try) & thrash the scenic. Its an auto so im always doing the old kick down in it Mind you though its quite scarey when you corner hard & it feels like its going to roll over plus it feels like im sat on the roof compared to the scooby

Lol, i drive my work car ( astra estate 1.3td ) like i stole it on a daily basis but thats prob something to do with the fact it's a company car so if thee worst happens i'd get a new one ( assuming i walked away lol ). On the other hand, the astra's so slow you have to beat the crap out of it to get it to move anyway.........officer.....

I've snapped an engine mount in a Rover 218 Turbo (years ago), blown an engine in a Fiat Cinquchentiqothingamebob and knackered the traction control on a VW Golf 2.0 TD. All of this through extreme abuse but it's ok as they were all company cars.
